Wilson helps Seahawks take down the Eagles

Wilson helps Seahawks take down the Eagles

The veteran was thrust into action for the Philadelphia Eagles after Carson Wentz was knocked out of the game thanks to what looked like a cheap shot by Jadaveon Clowney in the first quarter.

Carson Wentz and the Philadelphia Eagles were eliminated from the playoffs at the hands of the Seattle Seahawks yesterday.

From there, Metcalf performed admirably as the Seahawks' clear number two pass-catching option and amassed 900 yards, 43 first downs, and seven touchdowns over 16 regular-season games (15 starts). Backup QB Josh McCown was unable to lead Philly to a touchdown so despite a good effort from the defense, the Eagles were eliminated. Now that he knows Wentz is OK, Wilson can focus on trying to take down the Green Bay Packers in the divisional round.

This was the Russell Wilson that was in the MVP conversation during the first nine games of the season.

"Would be better if Wentz was playing, but it's kind of par for the course at this point", said Jack Matthews, Eagles fan. He scored what ended up being the game-winning touchdown on a 53-yard strike from Wilson.

Running back Marshawn Lynch didn't log a ton of yardage on the ground, in fact, he finished as the team's third-most productive runner behind Russell Wilson and Travis Homer, respectively.

"Head injuries are a scary thing so I appreciate everybody's thoughts and prayers", he said. In the first quarter against the Seahawks in Philadelphia, he joined all those players in the injury tent, and eventually the locker room.

Well that, and a record-breaking game by receiver DK Metcalf, who set a team record for receiving yards in a playoff game with 160, which is an National Football League record for a rookie in a playoff game.

"To go back there is going to be great", he said.

The statistics belie what was really going on in the game. But he said he was "so dang proud" of the team and how they overcame adversity in 2019. "I quiz him. Every time".

Chris Long, a former teammate of Wentz, didn't like the fact that people were questioning the quarterback after the injury and let them have it on Twitter. The Southern Methodist University product played four seasons for the Cardinals before tenures with the Detroit Lions, Oakland Raiders, Carolina Panthers, Chicago Bears, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Cleveland Browns, New York Jets, and his initial retirement. The Seahawks are 0-2 against the Packers at Lambeau Field in the postseason.
